Listed below are updates to the top 10 domain sales from a year ago this week, as ranked by DN Journal.

1. SexStories.com for $200,000

  • The same buyer picked up #1 and #2 on this week’s list for $200k each. Porn site on each domain. The buyer is “WGCZ s.r.o.” of the Czech Republic. This one has an Alexa rank around 3.6 million.

1. AsianPorn.com for $200,000

  • This is buy #2 for “WGCZ s.r.o.”, and the screenshot is much less family-friendly, so we skipped it here. The owner likes their porn names, with their collection including others such as s-e-x.com, 69.net, xxx.com, pimp.com, and hundreds more. Alexa rank near 1.1 million on this site.

3. Struts.com for $70,000

  • Domain redirects to Shocks.com, with that screenshot below. Owned by a company named “Just Suspension”, based in North Carolina.

Struts

4. SquareMeal.com for $55,000

  • Their site isn’t fully functional yet, and they say they’re launching in June 2014. Appears they have intentions to be a travel & event booking site, based in Seychelles.

SquareMeal

5. ChinaManufacturing.com for $35,000

  • Per the DN Journal post last year, this was a sale to the owners of ManufacturingChina.com, although there are different sites on each domain. “China Manufacturing offers factories in China soltuions to connect with buyers at international tradeshows. We are the pioneers of shared exhibit soutions.” (their typos, not mine)

6. TabletScreen.com for $25,000

  • No site resolves. Owned by the individual who owns the developed VancouverLaptops.com. Seems like a nice price for the seller…..not alot of search volume for the phrase.

7. SmartSuit.com for $23,000

  • “Elegant protection for your laptop and tablet“. Affiliated with the folks behind Trust.com, which surprisingly (to me) is a site about “digital lifestyle accessories“, and not the financial and/or legal use of the term ‘trust’.

SmartSuit

8. PopMart.com for $21,000

  • Fancy site, but I can’t figure out what they do…..perhaps someone smarter than me can figure it out. Their slogan is “Make Something Fun”.

PopMart

9. FarmRealEstate.com for $20,000

  • As a sometimes/part-time farmer, I was surprised to see such a strong selling price here for a long tail domain. This site focuses on selling farm real estate in Canada. They appear to have just over 100 listing currently, many of which have an asking price in the millions of dollars.

FarmRealEstate

9. IndoNews.com for $20,000

  • An Indonesian-language news site. Traffic leader for the week, with an Alex rank near 1.1 million.

    Always interesting reading Aaron, as someone who, like you, buys domains with the intention (aspiration in my case maybe!) to develop them into viable businesses, I really enjoy this weekly round up. Keep up the good work!
